Alyson and her four young girls came to Family Promise of Hendricks County after the father of her children was incarcerated. She couldn’t afford to live on her own, but was determined to seek the resources she needed to become self-sufficient in order to give her girls the best life possible.
When she arrived at the shelter she had goals to become a certified home healthcare aid, buy her own car, find affordable health care and eventually move into her own home. With the help of Family Promise of Hendricks County, Alyson was able to meet all of these goals and more in just 92 days! She is now living in a 4-bedroom apartment where she can comfortably afford her rent and utilities.
During her last week with Family Promise, Alyson’s 8-year-old daughter drew a picture that perfectly describes the mission of Family Promise: Creating stepping stones for families in the community moving from homelessness to sustainable housing.
